Award History

2016 Finalist

RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers
for With My Scarf Tied Just So

Jury Citation

“The narrator in ‘With My Scarf Tied Just So’ sharpens our vision of the world. A reproachful cat, a neighbour who designs abattoirs, a judgmental lover – this is not the Paris of travel brochures. A gorgeous story designed by a watchful eye, uncovering delicious vulnerabilities and the hidden truths we love.” — 2016 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award Jury (Eden Robinson, Johanna Skibsrud, and Michael V. Smith)
